Hello everyone! I only discovered this forum yesterday. I am tall and also extremely skinny. I have gone through untold dozens of off-the-peg suits where I live (Germany); it's hopeless. Either I can wrap myself twice into coat and trousers, or the sleeves (and everything else) are way too short. So I am considering having a suit made by a tailor, all the more so as I am anyway planning a holiday in Asia in the spring. (Sorry, there is just no way I can shell out EUR 3,000+ for a bespoke suit from Savile Row or an Italian tailor.) I've already spent hours ploughing my way through forum posts on this topic. As I understand it, the gist seems to be this (please feel free to correct me if I got any of this wrong, I am a complete beginner in the matter): 1. For anybody without the means (or not willing) to part with absurd amounts of money on Savile Row, a pretty good value-for-money alternative are the renowned Hong Kong tailors, such as W.W. Chan & Sons, would that be correct? According to Chan's Web site, the average price of a 2-piece suit comes to roughly USD 1,000 including the cloth. Which is already a huge difference. 2. Alternative no. 1: Bangkok tailors, but not the purely tourist-oriented ones. Some people seem to swear by July Tailor, although someone has pointed out (I think it was on this board) that they don't do "fully canvassed" coats (I have a vague idea of what that means). Are the high-end tailors in Bangkok noticeably less expensive than the best shops in Hong Kong? Is the price difference worth it? 3. Alternative no. 2: There's also an interesting thread here somewhere on Dung in Saigon. Apparently a complete suit including (good?) cloth comes to about USD 400 there. My question is, has anybody had experience with all three? HK, Bangkok, Saigon? How does the less expensive work by Dung compare to the masters in Bangkok and Hongkong? Wherever I decide to take my custom, it's going to be my first-ever tailor-made suit and I am very, very worried that it won't come out well for whatever reason (maybe I'm just not built to wear suits to begin with). So at the moment I am leaning toward having it made in Saigon. If it comes out ok, I can still think about where I want to go the next time, and it it doesn't, at least the education only cost me 400 dollars, not 1,000. What do you guys think? I appreciate any helpful input! I don't have a very specific image in my mind of what suit I want, except that it should probably be a 3-button. Also, I wouldn't mind if it made me look a little less tall (as I said I am tall and thin.) Thanks everyone!
